The textile works of New York City-based artist Kim Sooja are collected in this catalog of a European exhibit held at both the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon and Museum Kunst Palast in Dusseldorf. Often exhibited as installations and video projections, the works included profile Sooja's artwork from 1999 to 2002 and feature her distinctive techniques of sewing, altering, and tearing up clothes and used linen. The role of femininity in the modern world and the effects of globalization on local culture are explored in the alterations of traditional Korean fabrics such as the bojaghi.
